PokerStars is offering a fantastic promotion available to all new players. Receive £20/$20 free, credited automatically and instantly!
Unlike most other poker welcome bonuses, where you must play poker to earn poker points, and then redeem those points to receive your bonus, PokerStars is giving you this bonus up front!
There are some details which we will outline below.
First off, you must register a new account at PokerStars. Click here to visit PokerStars and download the free software. Install the software, launch the application, and then click on Create Account.
Fill in the registration form with your real information and working email address. You will have to validate the email address later on.
At the “How did you hear about PokerStars” prompt, click “Choose Source” and select Marketing Code (if available).
At the “Enter Marketing Code:” prompt, enter the code GPSTSPROMO. GPSTSPROMO will qualify your account for the FREE $/£20 promotion!
Check the box to agree you are at least 18 years of age and you agree to the license agreement, then click “Create Account”.
Once you have validated your email address, you can log into PokerStars and make a deposit. Visit the “Cashier” and select “Buy Chips”.
The deposit options available to you are determined by your location. Below are the payment methods available to UK residents.
The “Fast Deposit” mtehods allow you to instantly deposit money into your account from the poker table, without having to visit the cashier and go through the extra steps!
Now, at the point of making a deposit, you will be prompted for the payments details, amount, and an optional bonus code.
For UK residents, be sure to enter the PokerStars bonus code 20FOR10 – this special UK code awards you the £20 free. 20FOR10 means get £20 when depositing just £10! See below:
For those of you residing outside of the UK, you can use the alternate PokerStars bonus code FREE20 for the $20 free bonus.
Both codes and bonuses work similarly. The free money allows you to try out the real money poker games without risking anything! If you redeemed the 20FOR10 UK bonus code, you will receive the bonus in two increments.
The first £10 bonus will be credited to your account within 36 hours. The second £10 increment will be credited 7 days after your initial deposit.
If you redeemed the FREE20 code, you will receive the entire $20 within 36 hours.
You are not allowed to withdraw the bonus money itself, but you can use it to play real money poker and you can withdraw any winnings! Have fun at the tables.
PokerStars has an alternative bonus code, which matches your deposit 100% for up to $600. This welcome bonus does not award you any free money upfront, and instead you must earn the bonus by paying rake and tournament fees. You can read more about the PokerStars bonus code STARS600 here.
